Nope, no patterns anywhere to justify profiling!

To ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people. They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, infants, airline pilots with proper identification, Secret Service agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year-old
Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winning former governors. Let's also make sure that our classroom teachers blame no one for the 9/11 disaster - it's far better that our children grow up believing that perhaps we, as a nation, somehow deserved what happened on that fateful day. Certainly we should never hint that it was carried out by Muslim male activists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

Re: Are you as smart as your government?

Who said they thought it was funny in the first place????? What are you, a muslim male extremist somewhere between the age of 17 and 40, or a bleeding heart right wing liberal who thinks everyone should have the right to terrorize and kill innocent people. Personaly, I think it is all too true, and to save the world from further grief, they ought to take em all out and shoot them (muslim extremists that is) and let them go to their ali or ala or whatever the he11 they call there god.

Re: Are you as smart as your government?

i dont find it funny , just amusing . the political correctness in this country is sickening. muslims are not bad people in general. but there are bad people who use their interpretation of the muslim religion to promote their cause . i to find it hard to look at "that sort of people " and not feel any hate , but the gentleman that owns the local "qwiky mart " had nothing to do with 9-11 and he is a very hard working AMERICAN CITIZEN just like you and i . (he fits into the 17- 40 category too) . so i to put my anger aside and treat him like i would treat any other store owner ..... i feel that if you fit the profile than you should expect to get searched , if you look like an american and blend in well enough than maybe you wont be singled out. i would hate to be an arab in an east coast airport yelling out in arabic for a lost child ......... talk about all he!! breaking loose . but hey you are in america and you want to be an american then start acting AND talking like one . our language is ENGLISH !!!!! learn it and learn it well or get the %$&amp;* out !!!! i hate the fact that i have to read a spanish set of instructions before i get to read it in english . what the heck is that all about? oh wait a minute i forgot about all those illegal mexicans in the golden state and all the mexican american politicians trying to make it easy on them . more votes you know. bilingual is a bunch of B.S. , you wouldnt expect the french to change there national language for a bunch of immigrants . nor should we as americans be expected to do it either . just my "humble" opinion Von Warner

Language

This has come up before, but it bears repeating. There is NO NATIONAL LANGUAGE IN THE USA. As part of the policies inviting and accepting all nationalities, cultures, &amp; religions, the founding fathers specifically omitted selecting an "official national language". Yes, all the original documents are in English, but that's because most of the guys writing them were English expatriots. I don't have a problem with instruction books being printed in as many languages as the manufacturer thinks he can sell the product, but I DO disagree with businesses being forced BY LAW (NOT BY CONSUMER DEMAND) to spend the money to translate. I think it's fine for election ballots &amp; other official documents to be translated to any language spoken by a significant portion of the registered voters (who should all have to be legal citizens).

As for the reaction to a middle-easterner screaming in Arabic in an airport - that's just hysteria, paranoia, and plain stupidity. Besides, the reaction wouldn't be THAT much different if it were a caucasian American screaming...
